05 Jan New Owners at the Bloomington Brewing Co.
For Immediate Release, Jan 5, 2022
Jeff Mease commented, “We’re excited for a new era for the Bloomington Brewing Company. Lennie and I have operated BBC for more than 27 years now, and it’s been a good run. We’ve built a lot of brand equity, created a lot of friendships in the pub, and made a lot of great beer—thanks to the focus and commitment of a talented chain of brewers over that 27 years–beginning with Russ Levitt, who was the very first brewer back in the 90’s (Russ went on to help found the Upland Brewing Co.), Floyd Rosenbaum who still works with us in various capacities, and finally Nick Banks, who led the brewery for the last 6 years. These guys (and several others) had a tremendous passion for their craft, and together I think we created something remarkable. We built this thing to last. We’ve long admired those European beverage purveyors who built multi-generational brands. Some are hundreds of years old. We’re excited to have Amanda, Jarrod, Zech and the team from Four Day Ray continue the fun, and we’ll be helping along with way to contribute to this ongoing and delicious Bloomington Brewing adventure.”
